Car: Not Necessary

North Captiva Island is one of the few bridge-less barrier islands on Florida's gulf coast. Since access is limited to private boat, water taxi or private airplane, the island has maintained its natural beauty. There are no cars on the island, transportation is by golf cart, bicycle or foot. All roads are narrow dirt roads which help maintain the tropical and unspoiled beauty of the Island where wildlife abounds. The Beaches are secluded, uncluttered and are world famous for shelling and fishing and beautiful sunsets.

Other Activities: Boats/jet skis available for rent
